How’s this for a cool name for a kindie band? The Sippy Cups. Yup, Sippy Cups aren’t just things from which you drink, but they are also a rock band for kids. And Alison Faith Levy, Sippy Cups band member formerly known as “Sippy Alison,” has returned to the kindie music scene to create a solo album for kids! Her newest CD, World of Wonder includes such catchy tunes as “Reach for the Sky,” “Like a Spinning Top,” and CW’s favorite “Detours” (which is all about driving and the detours we take)!
While Levy is not a stranger to the music stage (she spent five years on tour with “The Sippy Cups” and then performed with her grown-up band of “McCabe & Mrs. Miller”), her new album World of Wonder provides new pop songs for kids, with a fresh new sound. When we popped the CD into the car stereo, I didn’t feel like I was trapped in the car with a CD for the kids. I felt like I was listening to the radio. And CW has nearly memorized “Detour” after only listening a handful of times. It is catchy, I will admit. There are songs for the whole family on there. Levy even does a new rendition of “The Itsy Bitsy Spider” which had MD bopping along in his high chair!
If you’re looking for something new and lively to listen to, you cannot go wrong with World of Wonder. Alison Faith Levy will open up a whole new world for both you and your children. Her rich voice and pop tones will be a welcome break from the other songs you hear over and over in your head, I can assure you! And if you’re lucky enough to be located in the San Francisco Bay Area, you can attend the “World of Wonder” CD Release Party at the Bay Area Discovery Museum on May 12th. So, say goodbye to Barney and hello to a World of Wonder!
